  • Publication number: 20060257811
    Abstract: A supporting body for use in an orthodontic appliance comprises an anchor member (12) for being fixed in a bone (18), a screw member (14) to be engaged into a female screw part (26) of the anchor member (12), and a holder (16) to be supported on the anchor member (12). The holder (16) is fixed on the anchor member (12) as the screw member (14) is in tight contact with the female screw part (26) of the anchor member (12). The holder (16) can be detached from the anchor member (12) as the screw member (14) is in loose contact with the female screw part (26) of the anchor screw (12) but still lying in the female screw part (26) of the anchor screw (12).

  • Publication number: 20030190577
    Abstract: The present invention provides an orthodontic bracket having a bonding surface that has excellent adhesiveness to a tooth surface due to undercuts having been formed by plastic deformation. A bracket 1 that is bonded to a tooth surface using an adhesive for orthodontic treatment is made from a plastic, specifically a polycarbonate or a polyamide. A bonding surface 4 of the bracket 1 is constituted from recessed parts 4a and protruding parts 4b. A projecting member 6 having a-tip part thereof formed into an approximately V-shaped pointed shape is pushed into an outside edge part of each protruding part 4b, whereby the protruding part 4b is pushed outward via a groove 4c. Side walls of each protruding part 4b thus spread out toward the recessed parts 4a, whereby undercuts 5 are formed in the bonding surface 4.
